After a long wait and many anxious moments, I finally got the car. It is even more amazing than I remember it from my test drive. It looks so much better in my driveway than at the dealer.
I finally settled on Titanium silver and black leather interior with orange stitching. I had the wheels powder-coated a dark titanium color (I find the factory stealth finish a bit too dark for my taste) and orage calipers. The contrast calipers really make the car shine (so much for understated!). I don't regret my spec at all!
It took my cousin, who has a Scud, for a ride (and drive) and he could not believe how smooth and quick it was compared to his car. It feels so composed and well put together.
I can't wait for the weekend to drive it more.
I think that I'll sleep in it tonight.:D

(For some reason I'm not able to upload pics. Will do as soon as I can figure it out.):confused:

Congrats. I hope that the weather is good for the 2-300 miles you'll put on it this weekend; once you start driving it, you waon't want to stop.

Looks the Biz. Like the colour.

Sleeping in it is totally understandable, especially if your from Mars! But I do think people from Venus will understand as they know it is a 'toy'.

Hey Moncho, when are you going to bring it round to my place? I just heard that mine gets delivered to my house on the 20th - would be interesting to talk with you about the delivery experience and Park Place's performance

Looks great, enjoy it. Mine will not be here till mid-June. Can't wait!
The wait can drive you insane! The first months seem to go by fast, but I found the last few weeks unbearable.

Moncho,

Congrats, I really like the wheel and caliper combo. Enjoy!
I've only had it for 24hrs, but don't think I'll miss the R8. Plus, I have no garage space for both. I had similar thoughts when I moved from the NSX to the R8... Never missed the NSX. I think the same will happen now. The 12C has everything you love about the R8, plus much, much more... Don't look back!!!
